I received a lawyers letter with regards to outstanding money at the beginning of the year. I contacted the company and asked who I must pay, I was told by the manager that I must pay the lawyer because I had been handed over. So no problem I made arrangements with the lawyer to pay until I had sorted out the paperwork for the credit notes for returned goods. Got the lawyers banking details and paid as arranged.
Once the paperwork was sorted out I sent the documentation to the lawyer with the credit amount ( twice the amount i owed the supplier) that was the last I heard from them, thought fair enough lawyers fees etc , right it off.
Suddenly this month I get an invoice from the supplier indicating that I owe then the full amount including all the money already paid to the lawyer
